Exercise #6

Hi Everyone,
After making it this far through the programme I have decided that blogging etc is for those lucky people with a lot of spare time! However doing the tasks has revealed a whole new world of technological wizardry that is mind-boggling. There are so many things you can do - isn't technology great!

I created this montage of sunset photos, after lots of trials and tribulations making it the right size!

First Game

The team kicked off this term's games with a loss of 18-4. However they played very well against a more aggressive, disciplined team. Better luck next week, girls!

On a brighter note, as you can see, I finally managed to attach a photo from Flickr to this blog. I was ably assisted by kind friends at work, who patiently explained things to me. I was stumbling over creating a new Yahoo account, but once that was established I was away. Thanks girls. Now for the next exercise...

I'm becoming very frustrated trying to transfer a photo from Flickr to this blog. After trying countless times, following the instructions, setting up a Flickr account etc, I just can't seem to find the 'Blog this' button which is supposed to be above the photo.
Alternatively, when I try to do it the other way round and enter the URL that doesn't jolly well work either! Aaaahhh!
What am I doing wrong?
This is the link? to the photo or is it the URL?

Setting this thing up

I managed to get this far, but I'm having trouble attaching a photo that's not too big. This is very time consuming!


This is going to be a running record of my daughter's netball team's games this season. The girls are in Year 5 at primary school and are aged 9 or 10. Last term they played eight grading games, winning six and losing 2. This term they have been put in grade 4 so we'll see how they get on, starting with their first game next week.
